Sequence of Events

Our experienced team focuses on the quality and the efficiency of the investigations and tests done as part of a medical check-up in order to minimize the time spent at the clinic. With this in mind, the appointments for medical check-ups are given from 6:30 a.m., allowing you to resume your usual activities quickly.

After scheduling the appointment, a comprehensive medical questionnaire is sent to you by mail or email, depending on your preference.

To prepare for your medical check-up, you should :

    • Bring the medical questionnaire completed
    • Bring a complete list of your current medication
    • Bring all relevant test reports
    • Fast for 12 hours before the appointment, 48 hours with no alcohol
    • Bring comfortable running shoes for the general fitness evaluation and the stress electrocardiogram (on the treadmill)

  • Half day

    The first visit  lasts on average 3 hours, depending on each person’s characteristics.

  • Laboratory Analysis

    For patients wishing to do the laboratory tests on the spot, the medical check-up takes place in the morning, as they must be fasting for blood tests and urine tests.

     During the visit, you present yourself with the medical questionnaire (medical history, current medications, lifestyle, etc.).
